The Wildflower Center is a botanical garden in Austin, Texas, dedicated to native plants. Our vision for the future is to preserve and restore the natural beauty and biological richness of North America by inspiring people to love the land. We want people to think differently about the plants around them. We want people to understand the role of native plants in a healthy ecosystem, to value the beauty and health of the natural landscape that defines their heritage, and to take action to protect, conserve, and restore the natural landscapes of North America.

This is a great research facility for wildflower issues. Unfortunately, when I visited, it was an August day with the temperatures around 102 degrees. Things were not in the best of shape but I assume a visit in the spring or early summer would be worth the drive.
